Celebrate Earth Day with Las Flores Community Garden!
The Las Flores Community Garden will have a booth at the Thousand Oaks Earth/Arbor Day event on Saturday, April 13. Our knowledgeable gardeners will be talking to people about our garden and how a community garden works. Bring the kids! We will be offering face painting for children. We will also be selling starts: young vegetable, herb, and flower plants ready for you to take home and plant in your garden. Purchasing a start is an inexpensive way to get a jump into your summer planting. And you won’t have to carry them around all day: we are happy to hold your purchases at the booth until you are ready to leave. We even have garden-enriching worms for sale to help you get your young plants off to a good start. We hope to see you there!

What Is a Community Garden?
A community garden is a place where individuals, couples, teachers, and families come together to raise fruits, vegetables, flowers, and herbs. We rent plots and share our knowledge and experiences. We are a nonprofit organization and we abide by garden by-laws, city ordinances, and common courtesies. Garden members have the exclusive use of their garden plots along with the shared responsibility for the overall garden site.
